No. its not a blue WAP4. It's WAG7 in her new look. Railway had tried this to make loco cab more pilot friendly.-- T bandopadhyay

The new WAG7 27895 with a WAP4 shell makes an unexpected visit to Nagpur with the Tatanagar Passenger. A look inside the cab revealed that the changes are more than just skin deep. I wanted to get back with a better camera and take more photos but was stuck with other work and could not make it.

The cab of the born again WAG7 27895 from Asansol. Ssme things in the cab have finally been put together as I'd love to see them. The Ammeter and the Voltmeters are now a more visible white background. The notch repeater (not seen in the photo) is a digital one. The brake gauges are also better laid out. However, someone can't seem to figure out the idea position for the speedo. It has been placed on the left hand side, above the brake gauges. It is easier for a driver to look at when standing, but a pain when seated.
